Songfacts®:

  • This experimental, glitchy electronic track finds Matty Healy delivering lyrics about disorientation and the passing of time in a barely recognizable vocal.

    Time feels like it's changed, I don't feel the same
    Try your best
    Yeah, I know
    Emas eht leef t'nod I-I-I ,--s'ti ekil sleef emiT


    The third line of the verse ("Time feels like it's changed, I don't feel the same") is reversed in the last line.
  • The electronic music Healy and his bandmates listened to in their youth served as inspiration for the song. He told Apple Music: "I remember super, super minimal ravehead music when I was growing up. It was just a synth and a drum kit. We're also big Thom Yorke fans, outside of Radiohead, so I think there's probably a bit of that."
  • The music video features Ai-Da, the world's first ultra-realistic robot artist, sketching an impression of consciousness.
